Photonic bandgap crystals are expected to be of use in defining microcavities for modifying spontaneous emission and as highly reflective mirrors. There are several reports of microfabricating one-dimensional structure. Here, we describe the incorporation of a microfabricated two-dimensional photonic lattice in an edge-emitting semiconductor laser structure. We demonstrate laser operation in a cavity formed between a cleaved facet and a microfabricated periodic lattice.
